Here is some basic information about Citrus limonia.


Citrus limonia basic info
Scientific Name: Citrus limonia Osbeck.

Genus: Citrus.
Common names in English: chine lemon, cravo lemon, hime lemon, lemandarin, mandarin lime, marmalade lime, Otaheite orange, Rangpur lime, red lemon.
For common names of Citrus limonia in different languages - See link
Description: Rangpur, Citrus × limonia, also known as lemandarin, is a hybrid between the mandarin orange and the lemon. It is a citrus fruit with a very acidic taste and an orange peel and flesh. Rangpurs are highly acidic and can be used as a substitute for commercial limes. However the name lime in connection with this fruit is often misleading, because there are very few similarities between the rangpur and other fruits called limes. It is cultivated as an ornamental tree for planting in gardens and a container plant on patios and terraces in the United States. Outside the U.S. it is used principally as a citrus rootstock, except Costa Rica where it is also grown commercially and is preferred over lime and lemon. Common names for this fruit include rangpur, named after Rangpur, Bangladesh, a city known for this and other citrus fruits. The rangpur is known as a Canton lemon in South China, a hime lemon in Japan, as limão-capeta, limão-cravo or limão-galego in Brazil, and mandarin-lime in the United States. - for more info about Citrus limonia See link
